Felling Large Standing Trees
The unique body shape and hitch angle of the Battle Ax allow it to be rolled back to expose the knives when cutting trees. This eliminates the need for a hydraulic door.
Shaving Off Large Material
The rear of the cutter can be lowered to contact the trunk and control cutting depth. This helps prevent logs from being ejected to the rear.
Tilting the head forward while backing up pulls the downed material against the shear bar for more efficient cutting, which produces finer particle sizes. A second recutter bar at the discharge reduces material further and directs it to the ground.
The rear of the cutter can be lowered close to the ground, trapping material in the cutting chamber. Adjusting the height of the skid shoes can even allow mulching below grade.
